romney with 31% and similar survey taken last year had santorum seven points ahead. rasmussen has santorum 42% and romney at 24%. clearly romney has the big mo. for an unique perspective of the ohio g.o.p. primary and the issues most relevant to ohioans let's go to dayton and it's mayor, welcome into the "the war room." we're glad to have you. >> thank you. >> are dayton voters emblematic of what ohio voters are thinking? >> well, the reality is i'm actually an independent. i consider myself to be representative of about 80% of the people. and most people that i've talked to are sick of the circus that the politician versus created for themselves. >> so as far as the lay of the land on the ground in ohio, obviously the independents are going to be key, are they going to be able to vote in the republican primary? >> they have to declare--as i said, i'm actually an independent. if i wish to vote in the republican primary, then i have to declare and then i get labeled with a big fat "r" next to my name. the fact is independents can't vote in the primary. and if it people want to send
" at 10:00. "piers morgan tonight" starts now. >> thanks, anderson. big night for mitt romney in illinois based on exit polls and early votes. romney is the winner by double digits. much more of that in a moment. but look at the numbers. romney in the lead at 54%. santorum at 28%. ron paul and gingrich a distant third and fourth. we're waiting on mitt romney to speak now and second place rick santorum will also be speaking. we'll look ahead to the next stop on the primary sale. louisiana on saturday. and maryland, wisconsin, and d.c. on april 3rd. cnn's top team, wolf blitzer and john king. and gloria borger and david gergen. promoted to new york tonight. >> happy to be here. >> let's start with wolf. looks like a big win for mitt romney. how significant is illinois to his general campaign? >> if he stays above 50% in this vote in illinois, it'll be very significant. illinois being a very important state because of its population, the diversity. it's a big state. a lot of delegates at stake. he's going to do really well in illinois. clearly come out with the most delegates. rick santorum,
for mitt romney. even that call was just mitt romney as the apparent winner. because for five hours after poll closing it had been so close that it was impossible to say who had won the state. in fact right now mitt romney is the apparent winner of ohio because his margin of victory is only 1% and the entire vote isn't in yet. otio has been called for mitt romney but this was really, really close. still though as steve schmidt argued very well last night even when it's really, really close there is no prize for second place. even when it is that close a race. even a one-point race or zero-point race you would rather be the guy who won even if it's by a little than the guy who did not win. so ohio goes down not as a tie, not as otio but a win, in the mitt romney column and that matters. a win that is frankly as important to mr. romney's presidential prospects as his win was in michigan a week ago. in both those big important bell-weathery states, rick santorum gave mitt romney a run for his money. but ohio and michigan also show really clearly i think the two most important dynamics, the t
-called experts were saying romney had it all but done, not is fast. >> could romney lock it up or another revival for newt gingrich. he loses in the two south states. he says he's staying in. now the questions are can santorum find a path to challenge romney? it would be easier if gingrich gets out. the math, the rules, the history. everything tells you it's still romney over the long hall into may and june. but you know what? our politics have been outside the rules. we elected our first african-american president. the tea party movement came out of nowhere. so let's watch. santorum's going to puerto rico. then we have a big primary in illinois. back to the midwest where if you look at the demographics, should be a romney state. >> puerto rico is this coming sunday. >> huge. >> and then illinois is a week from now on tuesday. >> i think i need to go to cover it. >> in fairness to mitt romney, he's still away head in the delegate count. he's got more than all of the other candidates combined so far. >> and this isn't the way they wanted it to be right now. if they do go across the finish line, th
from washington, d.c.. >> good evening, i'm bret baier live in chicago where mitt romney blew through the windy city to record a major win today. rick santorum finishes second. ron paul will finish in third. and newt gingrich, fourth. we have team coverage tonight. mike emmanuel at the candidate home state of pennsylvania and carl cameron at the site of the romney celebration in illinois. hi, carl. >> hi, bret. big win for mitt romney. double digits. and early in the day aides saying they'd be happy but they're confident they're going to win. and it's a very big win for mitt romney. he's won 21 of the 33 contests that happened so far. and as he has in previous vikt floiz mention of his rivals vokusing on barack obama and his removeal from office. here is how he put it. >> our choice will not be about party, or even personality. this election will be about principle. our economic freedom will be on the ballot. i'm offering a real choice. and a new beginning. i'm running for president because i have the experience and the vision to get us out of this mess. >> bret: familiar rhet
states of america. thanks, you guys. >> former massachusetts governor mitt romney speaking in massachusetts tonight. addressing his supporters. we do not yet know the results in ohio. it's still too close to call in that race. as you saw, the numbers going by while mr. romney was speaking, the numbers on your screen. we've all been watching those numbers coming in in ohio, wondering what's going to happen. the difference between rick santorum and mitt romney is just 10,000 votes. a lot of that still to come in. that's just a fascinating race to be watching right now. rick santorum has won in oklahoma and tennessee. but ohio we knew was going to be the big prize tonight. to have that still undecided at this point is remarkable. >> it's an amazing night for people who care about this country. and it's politics, everything will turn on this. we've been watching the trend over the last week or so. it's been all in romney's favor. all the big money, he poured tremendous advertising this weekend. we saw there were a lot of people deciding for him. tonight we're learning the late
mitt romney supporter, phil musser, co-anchor of cnbc's squawk box, "the new york times" andrew ross sorkin, jen ben dri of "the huffington post" and former white house deputy press secretary bill burton who runs the obama super pac, priorities usa action. mitt romney the only man standing in illinois today, as newt gingrich campaigns in louisiana and rick santorum is in pennsylvania. but with team romney these days, is there even such a thing as a decisive win? phil, i want to go to you first on this. and these numbers, i think, are somewhat staggering, if you look at politico reporting in illinois mitt romney outspending rick santorum 7-1. chicago, he's outspending santorum 21-1. i want to unpack the chicago numbers first because why spend that mump money in chicago? isn't that romney territory already or is this a sign of a campaign not letting anything go? >> that's a good question. the one thing to know about illinois is that 70% of the vote in the illinois primary comes from north of the interstate 80 that cuts the state in half. or the bulk of the vote comes from, it come
in chicago where mitt romney blew through the windy city to record a major win today. rick santorum finishes second. ron paul will finish in third. and newt gingrich, fourth. we have team coverage tonight. mike emmanuel at the candidate home state of pennsylvania and carl cameron at the site of the romney celebration in illinois. hi, carl. >> hi, bret. big win for mitt romney. double digits. and early in the day aides saying they'd be happy but they're confident they're going to win. and it's a very big win for mitt romney. he's won 21 of the 33 contests that happened so far. and as he has in previous vikt floiz mention of his rivals vokusing on barack obama and his removeal from office. here is how he put it. >> our choice will not be about party, or even personality. this election will be about principle. our economic freedom will be on the ballot. i'm offering a real choice. and a new beginning. i'm running for president because i have the experience and the vision to get us out of this mess. >> bret: familiar rhetoric from mitt romney. there is an indication from the campaign he would to
the president will run for re-election. we're also seeing a little bit of how mitt romney, the likely republican nominee is going to run against president obama. we'll have a bit more on that later in the show. of course, before mr. romney can fully jump into a general election campaign against the president, he still has to dispatch his rivals for the republican nomination. at this point in the campaign that means mitt romney has to be showing that he's consolidating his lead, showing he is locking up the republican establishment. pretty much every single day now that means mitt romney rolls out a high profile republican establishment endorsement. last week it was former florida governor jeb bush. this week it was republican senators mike lee and marco rubio and former president george h.w. bush. getting endorsements like that, having high profile surrogates, to talk on your behalf, for mr. romney that's been a doubl double-edged sword this year. on our staff and on our blog we talk about this as mitt romney's surrogate problem. right around the time of michigan primary you may remember mr. rom
campaign. >> romney finished third in both southern states. >> mitt romney forced to spend $2 million in mississippi and alabama. >> he said in alabama i'm going to win here. >> tell me what mitt romney needs to say. >> he's got a message problem and narrative problem? the messaging question. >> he's busy talking about cheesy grits and y'all and going around trying to be a regular guy. >> the vast number of the base does not want him. >> if you are the front runner and you come in third you are not much of a front runner. >> if i'm a weak front runner, what does that make newt gingrich. >> what happened to newt gingrich last night? >> newt gingrich vowing to roll on to tampa. >> i emphasize going to tampa. >> newt vowed to take his fight to tampa in he made it clear he is not getting out. >> gingrich is in this thing until the end. >> what state do you think you can win. >> i don't know yet. >> newt gingrich is swimming in a sea of delusion. >> it is hard for us to get inside of the great man's mind. >> newt craves attention as many of us politics do. >> why is this guy in the race. >
dramatic southern sweep, mitt romney's camp insists santorum can only stall not block romney's path to victory. the defense secretary gets a first-hand look at the garage aisle afghan mission just as we get word the argentina end who allegedly gunned down 16 afghan civilians was flown out of that country tonight. >>> president obama says regime change in syria is a question of when not if. president assad isn't listening, pressing a crackdown on the south keeping that city from south keeping that city from anti-government rebels. -- captions by vitac -- www.vitac.com >>> first some major international news tonight. a scary moment as the defense secretary leon panetta arrived to afghanistan. an afghan vehicle drove onto the runway area of a military base and set it afire. just as panetta's plane was landing. another major security breach but pentagon officials say no explosives were found in the vehicle and secretary panetta went on with his schedule, which includes a face-to-face promise to the afghan president hamid karzai for a thorough investigation of the shooting rampage blamed
candidacy doesn't hinge on whether it goes up or down. >> as the primary vote comes in, romney agrees with santorum on the freedom thing. >> i'm wondering where you suggest that the millions of women who receive their health services such as mammograms, the h.p.v. vaccines go? >> they can go wherever they'd like to go. this is a free society. >> here is the dumbest idea from newt gingrich. we ought to debate on pay per view and charge $10 and it should go to a charity of choice. >> yeah, maybe lincoln will coffer the primary in his land. and the republicans hell bent to phase out medicare and fed cade in their new budget for mini america. >> the penalty's budget is putting us on a path of a debt crisis, of decline, and these are the deficits that are in store for america if we stay with the status quo. >> including the debt limits deal the republicans agreed to last year on which they are now reneging. >> people have limits on credit cards. that doesn't mean that you're required to spend up to the limit. >> the killing of treyvon martin by a was want to be cop. >> are you following hi
. but our decision desk tells us vermont and virginia are too close to call. and, get this, mitt romney is in a tight race with ron paul in each of those states. of course, rick santorum and newt gingrich didn't even qualify for the virginia primary so it was just romney and paul on the ballot. our exit polls show mitt romney is generally winning among voters who say their top concern is the economy but not everywhere. and rick santorum is leading among voters who say they want a candidate with a strong moral character. but that's also not across the board. much more on the exit polls in just a moment. again, fox news now projects newt gingrich has won his former home state of georgia. 419 delegates up for grabs across 10 super tuesday states tonight. that's more than the total that need to win the nomination. less than a half hour away from the polls closing in the biggest race of the night in the state of ohio. so stay tuned. first, to campaign carl cammeron live at romney headquarters in boston. carl, what are we learning from the early returns? >> well, we see from georgia that newt
states. he won the most delegates. he even won the big prize of the night, ohio. so why does mitt romney still look like a big bowl of cold mashed peas to republicans? romney's argument seems to be you're stuck with me so live with it. not exactly the lift of a driving dream is it? the race goes on and on and guess what? the next few states favoring rick santorum. santorum might have a clean shot at romney if only newt gingrich would get out of the way. newt won his home state and nothing else yesterday so why is he staying in the race? meanwhile, over at team obama they're smiling i guess. i talked to david axelrod about the state of the race and president obama's great fortune in having mitt and company as his opponents. and only opponents. and rush limbaugh keeps losing advertisers but wait until you hear which big name progressive is defending him. finally let me finish tonight with the lack of greatness in the republican presidential campaign as if you needed to hear about it from me. we begin with mitt romney weak in victory. chuck todd's political director and chief white house co

romney. just hours ago, romney was saying santorum's campaign was running on fumes. >> the reagan tradition of visionary conservatism is based on proverbs and the very deep belief that without vision the people perish. i believe we need a visionary leader who's prepared to talk about a dramatically better future with dramatically more jobs, dramatically more energy and a much safer and stronger america. i think that's the key to winning this fall. not all this petty baloney but the really big choices. as i went around both states talking about $2.50 gasoline, having all sorts of folks in elite media say, that's not possible, then finally on saturday in "the wall street journal" a piece was entitled, newt gingrich is right about gasoline. and he walked through step by step why it was possible. and the fact is it is very possible. and then yesterday steven moore reported in "the wall street journal" -- these numbers are so amazing. i think the fact that i want to talk about substance is what makes this campaign different from other campaigns. it is the reason we're going to go all t

. if gingrich had not been in the race tonight, santorum might have had wider margins over romney. i asked rick santorum do you think speaker gingrich should get out of the race? here's what he had to say. >> do you think newt gingrich should drop out, senator? do you think speaker gingrich should drop out of the race? >> it'd be great if everybody dropped out. >> clearly you would have won by a wider margin. >> got to play with the cards you're dealt. >> so you hear him say you have to play with the cards you're dealt. clearly this is a delicate situation for the campaign. earlier he was on the glenn beck show. he said he would think it would be great for speaker gingrich to get out of this race. later this evening i asked one of his spokes people, his press secretary. do you think newt gingrich should get out of this race? does the santorum campaign say this? she said absolutely then came back later to me this evening saying we're not formally calling on newt gingrich to get out of this race. no question about it heading into the contests here, it would be a big help to this campaign. just to

in these two states, we are already impacting the national debate on a scale that all of romney's ad money hasn't achieved. and we're doing it because ideas matter. being able to make a principle case matters. the reagan tradition of visionary conservatism was based on proverbs and the deep believe that without vision people perish. and i believe we need a visionary leader who is prepared to talk about a dramatically better future with dramatically more jobs, more energy, and a safer and stronger america. that's the key to winning this fall. not all this petty baloney, but the really big choices. and as i went around both states talking about $2.50 gasoline, having all sorts of folks in the elite media saying that's not possible, and finally on saturday in the "wall street journal" they wrote a piece that is entitled "newt gingrich is right about gasoline." and he walked through step by step why it's possible. and the fact is it's very possible. and then yesterday, steven moore reported in the "wall street journal," numbers are so amaz g amazing, the fact i want to about substance is what make
